Cumberland County shifts Halloween to Oct. 30 by CUMBERLAND COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE Halloween will be held Oct. 30. trick-or-treating should begin at 6 p.m. and end no later than 8 p.m. Sheriff Ennis Wright Reminds residents to follow these Halloween safety tips: Motorists: Watch for children darting out from between parked cars and walking on roadways, medians and curbs. Enter and exit driveways and alleys carefully. Watch for children in dark clothing. Parents: Make sure that an adult or an older youth will be supervising outings for children under age 12. Check the sex offender registry when planning your child's trick- or-treat route. You can view maps that pinpoint registered offenders' addresses. Plan and discuss the route trick-or-treaters intend to follow. Make sure older kids trick- or-treat in a group. Instruct your children to travel only in familiar areas and along an established route. Teach your children to stop only at houses or apartment build- ings that are well-lit and never enter a stranger's home. Establish a return time. Tell children not to eat any treats until they return home. Review all appropriate trick-or- treat safety precautions, including pedestrian/traffic safety rules. All children need to know their home telephone number and how to call 9-1-1. Pin a slip of paper with the child's name, address and tele- phone number inside a pocket in case the youngster gets separated from the group. Costume Design: Only fire-retardant materi- als should be used for costumes. Costumes should be loose so warm clothes can be worn underneath. Costumes should not be so long that they are a tripping hazard. Make sure that shoes fit well to prevent trips and falls. If children are allowed out after dark, outfits should be made with light-colored materials. Strips of retro-reflective tape should be used to make chil- dren visible. Providing them with a flashlight is usually a good idea as well. Face Design: Do not use masks as they can ob- struct a child's vision. Use makeup instead. When buying Hallow- een makeup, check for packages containing ingredients that are labeled "Made with U.S. Approved Color Additives," "Laboratory Tested," "Meets Federal Standards for Cosmetics," or "Non-Toxic." Follow manufacturer's instructions for application. If masks are worn, they should have nose and mouth openings and large eye holes. And, especially for adults, remember that the North Carolina General Statutes make it illegal for a person who is 16 years old or older "while wearing any mask, hood or device whereby the person, face or voice is disguised so as to conceal the identity of the wearer, enter, be or appear upon any lane, walkway, alley, street, road, highway or other public way in this State" or to enter to be upon any property owned by the State, any county or any municipality in the State of North Carolina. Accessories: Knives, swords and other ac- cessories should be made from cardboard or flexible materials. Do not allow children to carry sharp objects. Bags or sacks should be light-colored or trimmed with retro-reflective tape if children are allowed out after dark. Carrying flashlights with fresh batteries will help children see better and be seen more clearly. While Trick-or-Treating: Do not enter homes or apart- ments without adult supervision. Walk ; do not run from house to house. Do not cross yards and lawns where unseen objects or un- even terrain can present tripping hazards. When possible walk on sidewalks, not in the street. Walk on the left side of the road, facing traffic if there are no sidewalks. Treats: Give children an early meal before going out. Insist that treats be brought home for inspection be- fore anything is consumed. Wash fruit and slice it into small pieces. Throw away any candy that is unwrapped or partially wrapped or has a strange odor, color or texture. Homeowners/Decorations: Keep candles and Jack-O'- Lanterns away from landings and doorsteps where costumes could brush against the flame. Remove obstacles from lawns, steps and porches when expecting trick-or- treaters. Keep candles and Jack- O'-Lanterns away from curtains, decorations and other combus- tibles that could catch fire. Do not leave your house unattended. "The Cumberland County Sheriff 's Office wants everyone to be careful and enjoy the holiday. Please be particularly vigilant between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 30 while Halloween is celebrated," Sheriff Ennis W. Wright said.
